CCTV Drain Survey & Drain Inspection

Our experienced engineers are NADC registered and fully trained, providing a professional friendly service and are available to advise and talk you through the process.

Who We Carry Out CCTV Drain Surveys For:

We carry out CCTV Surveys throughout Lincolnshire, Nottinghamshire and the South Yorkshire region for the following organisations:

  Health Authorities,

  Commercial / Industrial Organisations,

  District Council,

  Construction,

  County Councils,

  Consultants,

  Schools,

  Pest Control.

 

We also carry out pre-purchase surveys/ home buyer drains surveys to assess pipe work condition on the recommendation of Building Surveyors or Mortgage Lenders. This offers piece of mind before exchanging contracts and can be on behalf of either the vendor or the purchaser.

 

Regular surveying of a commercial/industrial site is recommended when carrying out any structural changes to the site that may affect the drainage infrastructure and also to avoid any potential pollution incidents.

CCTV Inspection & Home Buyer Drain Survey

A CCTV inspection provides a comprehensive picture of the structural condition, allowing engineers to immediately diagnose the problem and recommend the best course of action.

Using the digital camera technology to capture an internal view of the pipework, this can be used to ascertain the structural condition, with its findings and positions immediately displayed on the screen. A detailed report is produced; including recommendations which are submitted to the client. Caution! You may be surprised at what we find!

Home Buyer Drains Survey

Increasingly home buyer drains surveys or pre-purchase drain surveys are being used to assess pipework condition on the recommendation of building surveyors, mortgage lenders or insurance companies. This offers piece of mind before exchanging contracts and can be on behalf of either the vendor or the purchaser.  Purchasing a home is the single biggest purchase most of us will ever make therefore it makes sense to ensure you know it’s structurally sound. 40% of subsidence claims are due to leaking drains.

Knowing the location of the drains and its general condition will certainly rule out any nasty surprises later on.  Due to recent legislation the rules have changed on who is responsible for which drains / sewers, information of this is available on the local water authority websites.

Our experienced engineers are NADC registered and fully trained, providing a professional friendly service and are available to advise and talk you through the process.  We will provide a comprehensive report after completing the survey along with easy to follow findings highlighting any issues requiring attention / remedial action.

Illegal Connections

The home buyer survey is also an opportunity to ensure that all the drains are connected up properly.  In the past people have connected into the nearest available drain not knowing the difference between a surface (rainwater) and foul water system.

Sonar Tracing

Sonar Tracing gives us the ability to map out exactly where the drains run and how deep they run, while also giving us information as to what is wrong with the drain, such as a collapsed pipe.

Dye Testing and Tracing

Dye testing and tracing gives us the ability to locate the flow of a pipe. It is used in many small and large pipe networks to locate which pipe goes in which direction.

Drain Survey via CCTV
Tree Root Removal

Tree Roots

Root ingress can cause blockages and structural damage within the drainage system, many properties with established trees / hedges are potentially at risk.  A home buyer survey flags these issues before you purchase the property. For this reason most surveyors would recommend undertaking a house pre-purchase survey if the drains are in fairly close proximity to any trees, shrubs or hedges.

Any prospective home buyer must identify possible problems related with root incursion and its influence on drainage systems. A house pre-purchase study is even more important when the property is bordered by large trees, thick bushes, or hedges that are close to the drainage network.

Buyers can acquire useful insights into the present health of the drains and the possible risk of clogs and structural damage caused by root infiltration by conducting a thorough assessment.
